CoolMiniOrNot in conjunction with Gullotine Games is proud to announce that Zombicide: Season 3, Rue Morgue has successfully funded to the tune of $2,849,064 on Kickstarter. Topping Zombicide: Season 2, by nearly $600,000, Season 3 represents CoolMiniOrNot’s most successful campaign to-date.
After launch on July 29th, Zombicide: Season 3, reached its funding goal of $100,000 in just under seven minutes, and was featured on Kicktraq’s Hot List for every day of its 27 day run. Each backer pledged an average of $237 for copies of Zombicide: Season 3 and its accessories.
With just over 12,000 backers, Zombicide: Season 3 owes its success in part to providing gamers with the features they want. Team-based solo play, optional PVP rules, and a host of new weapons and abilities make Zombicide: Season 3 a fully functional game in its own right, not simply an expansion. This accessibility contributed heavily to the Kickstarter’s rousing success.
Zombicide Season 3 is also the most funded boardgame in Kickstarter history and is amongst the Top 20 Funded Kickstarter projects of all time – setting a new bar for future boardgame projects.
